Challenge - A Delicate Transformation
Increasingly, companies with traditional, plan-driven approaches want to experiment with Agile, eager to increase their business flexibility and responsiveness to change. However, an Agile transformation is not without challenges: breaking through barriers to adoption can be difficult, and changing ingrained ways of thinking and working, as well as the company culture, requires a long-term investment. But when properly implemented and embraced, Agile can launch a company into the future.
Solution - An Experienced Guide for the Journey
100% Agile ourselves, we fully understand and have experienced firsthand the process and how to mitigate its challenges. At Sngular, we partner with our clients to:
- Implement methods and frameworks that enable an Agile transformation
- Ensure the journey to gaining true business agility is quick and cost-effective
- Create a culture that fosters creativity and innovation, empowers people to do their best work, and reduces management layers
- Provide support from beginning to end
Our proprietary model measures the level of organizational maturity for key aspects of Agile: adaptation, self-management, shared priorities, transparency, inspection, and bureaucracy.
Agile Pilot Selection
For organizations new to Agile, our methodology starts with a pilot, helping familiarize teams with Agile processes and terminology, including Scrum, Kanban, Lean Software Development, and Xtreme Programming (XP).
Training & Preparation
We create training programs, carefully customized to each client’s needs, that provide a comprehensive overview of the Agile way of working, from defining roles (such as “product owner” and “scrum master”) to adopting new tools and team dynamics.
Our Agile coaches have the skills, knowledge, and mindsets to work closely with our clients’ teams. They are certified coaches with real experience in all phases of software development.
Once we have successfully completed the initial adoption of Agile competencies, we plan, design, and implement the mechanisms needed to extend and scale throughout the organization. We commonly work with a number of different scaling frameworks, including Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS), Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Disciplined Agile (DA).
Organizational Change Management
Sngular partners with clients to provide change management leadership throughout all phases of the process. We create an implementation roadmap and plan out all tasks, including setting up the change management teams, mapping the project sponsors and key stakeholders, creating a communication plan, and project management and measurement. These tasks are added to the Agile model to serve as a real life demo of this way of working.
